Former Manchester City defender, Vincent Kompany, was finally appointed the new manager of Burnley yesterday.

The Belgian had been looked set to return to England over the past few weeks and has finally got the move across the line ahead of pre-season.

Kompany is yet to coach in England but spent two years as Anderlecht boss, finishing fourth in the Belgian Pro League last season.

Following confirmation of his arrival, a number of football stars have shared their support for Kompany on social media.

Gary Linker wrote on Twitter: “Wish Vincent Kompany all the very best. A natural born leader if ever there was one.”

Elsewhere, Dion Dublin said: “The fans are going to have to get on board first and foremost because they have seen their club play a certain way and stay up and enjoy Premier League football for quite some time.

“It is going to be all change, he is going to want to play football and play out through the thirds and the fans have to be patient. It is all change.”

Finally, Stephen Warnock told Five Live that it would be a ‘big ask’ for the 36-year-old to help Burnley return to the Premier League in his first season.
